Roseland, N.J. (March 12, 2003) -- J.H. Cohn, a $65 million CPA firm in Roseland, N.J., is merging with The Videre Group, a $22 million firm in Parsippany, N.J., to create a super-regional Northeast practice that will be far and away the largest in metropolitan New York.The two firms have an agreement in principle to merge into a combined J.H. Cohn. The estimated $87 million firm created would rank 22 on Accounting Today's Top 100 Firms list, and No. 1 in the New York area ahead of Eisner, which reported $71 million in Accounting Today’s 2003 Top 100 Firms report.

"The combination of our two firms gives us the critical mass we need to further expand in New York City, Long Island, Westchester and Connecticut," said Tom Marino, chief executive of Cohn, who will retain that title. Videre chief executive David Talesnick will become president of J.H. Cohn Consulting, a Videre spokesman said.
